The data for this satellite image of Taranaki was recorded by Landsat 1 as it passed over New Zealand on 30 January 1974. The data consisted of wavelengths from four spectral bands – one green, one red, and two infrared. The native bush of Egmont National Park shows up clearly against the lighter pink of the cleared land in Taranaki.
